Dr Ludmila Ginsbursky MBACP
I came to counselling through my personal journey of self-exploration, personal growth and healing. Although I have considered counselling as a possible career when I was still a teenager, I am glad that I did not pursue it until later in life, when I achieved greater psychological and spiritual maturity. I lived and worked in several countries and have been through many crisis points and upheavals to appreciate that life is a challenging journey and we are not meant to make it alone.
I work with a wide range of issues, with a special focus on:
- relationship issues
- emotional trauma (including childhood trauma).
In my work I sometimes integrate counselling with body-mind approaches such as EFT tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique). These approaches that involve creative visualizations help to bridge the gap between the conscious and the unconscious mind activating the healing potential within us. In this way, I find, people make a tangible shift within a shorter period of time.

These are some quotes from people's testimonials:
“The sessions with Ludmila produced spectacular results for me. I came to see her because of a set of fear and insecurities I was experiencing. For a long time, I had felt like something was holding me back in life, and I finally decided to deal with it. ... With Ludmila’s help, I was able to finally distance myself from these fears. One major thing I learned in the sessions with Ludmila is how to be aware of the emotions I’m experiencing, and understanding where they come from. This is skill I continue to use and benefit from enormously. Ludmila is an admirable person, with a wonderful ability to listen, and a genuine desire to help others. It was extremely easy to open up to her and talk to her about very personal problems. ... not least thanks to the sessions with Ludmila, I was able to finally start a relationship with the person I love. Last month we got married!”
"I believe Ludmila is a powerful catalyst for personal growth, and a truly warm and healing presence. The times I have spent with her have been some of the most creative, pleasurable, and interesting I can remember.
The funny thing is sometimes you only realise how blocked you’ve been when you begin to feel something different. So maybe if you have the slightest inkling that things aren’t quite right in your life, just have a couple of sessions with Ludmila .. You may find your life opening up and transforming in quite remarkable ways!”
"Since I began working with Ludmila, I have definitely noticed a marked improvement in my life from the point of view of health, self-confidence and self-respect. My children, husband and friends have noticed how much happier and healthier I seem to be. They all encourage me to continue and I am so glad that I have finally invested time and money in MYSELF! I consider myself very lucky to have found Ludmila as a therapist."
"I am very grateful for the work we did together last autumn. It helped me a lot, and I really feel that thanks to it I’ve been able to develop a better attitude to dealing with insecurities and setbacks. I am together with my boyfriend and really enjoying this new experience."
